The Combating Terrorism Center’s (CTC) fourth cadet/student conference on Terrorism, Insurgency, and Asymmetric Conflicts will be held at West Point, New York, on April 5-6, 2016. The conference provides a high-level forum for undergraduate and graduate students to present research focusing on the characteristics, causes, and implications of terrorism and insurgency, as well as on broader issues related to asymmetric conflicts. The audience and discussants will consist of CTC/West Point faculty and prominent experts in the field.
The CTC will cover travel and lodging costs. In addition, selected high quality papers will be considered for publication as part of a special report of the CTC.
Students interested in participating in the conference are invited to submit formal proposals via email to Dr. Arie Perliger at arie [dot] perliger [at] usma [dot] edu. A proposal should include the paper title, abstract or tentative manuscript, and brief biographical information.
